UPDATED: MAY 4, 2015 330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) (6:4:6:4:13=3.3)Marduk (7695) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 7, 2015
Nice roasty aroma. Pleasantly dark, nice tan head. Pleasant roasty taste. Nicely drinkable stout. Roasty. Finish has a bit of coffee. 3.3 probably an under-rate but nothing’s saying wow.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Hopner, Tallinn, meet the brewer tap takeover) (7.4:7:4:14=3.5)
Lovely rich malty aroma, quite soy-like. Taste beautifully rich. Rich dark roast. Lovely full palate, but not heavy at all. Tons of bitter hops in the finish. Excellent stout. 5% - fantastic. Rerates are good, at least when they’re as good as this. Yummy stout - could session.
330ml bottle. Very dark brown, almost black color. Mellow roast, chocolate, malty, touch of yeast, sweet notes in aroma. Roasted malts, chocolate, bit ashy, milky, straw in taste. Nice milky roast in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Nice smooth palate. Nice one. High drinkability. VamboladeTolly (1993) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUN 4, 2015
